What is it in super soil that brings out the colors. The cootz mix sure doesn't do that.
chernobyl 9 weeks. looks a little whispier this time but turned out great. nice purple color also. sorry for the half assed trim job. had a lot of different conditions though. these were in my same super soil except i guess you could say it aged longer. 89-91F i usually like no more than 85F although im told they should thrive more. 1600-2000ppms of co2 probably too high. and the last 5 weeks or so it was under some pretty intense LED lighting instead of hps. maybe too close and heat strokin. these higher wattage leds do produce a lot of heat but nothing like a watt equiv hps. i still say hps givs you a better bang for your buck because of coverage and there are decent cheap bulbs out there. the leds are pretty cool though. the cob style i was planning on trying next the brands got terrible reviews so i will have to wait for a more favorable brand. the pics here is over 1200watts total of LEDS. different color spectrums just for fun to show off. we'll be growing space weed on space ships controlled by our cell phones before you know it. l3 is all 3 spectrums. l4 is reds. l5 is blues. l6 is white, UV, IR, and possibly others. l7 is a combo of whites and blues. l8 is a combo of whites and reds. multi strain multi stage grow.
The only female I got of 9lb hammer from the 5 pack of seeds. This is the second run. Still dialing it in, and the next one looks amazing. Here she is at 47 days!!! Anyone grow this strain?? i pulled at 50 days the first time. looking like 50 again. love the flavor, totally resin packed, nice yielder too. Couple hermies... but i think that is mostly due to stress. we'll see once i get it into ROLS cycle. This plant was grown in soil mix, lightly amended, and very little from a bottle, maybe 2 bloom feedings the whole cycle.
Respect to hgnw and odie for this one
Better pic.....Oregon diesel day 43

This is her out in the sun
5 jacked up seedlings
Transplanting some Conspiracy Kush. 3 of em' in 3 gal. pots for about a month, 2 showed female sex and the other 5 seedling are a few weeks behind.
Looks perfect MJ!
Jesus og. Love the resin to leaf ratio
Thanks Mo, if I lived closer, I'd love to do some bong rips w/ ya
How have you been getting along with those Kind LED's? Are they the K5 series?
I have been interested in seeing what those can do, have you noticed any great difference using them?
As far as the sunrise and sunset function, that seems cool. These are definitely on my list to try.
I would have liked to have seen Kessil do something better, but the H380 underwhelmed me.
I'm still working with Lighthouse Hydro and Blackstar, one old Haight Solid State still holding up.
And two Kessil's that I have that work periodically, one day on and one day off, who knows what's wrong with them.
Anyways, long post short, how d'ya like the Kinds'????
conspiracy kush small seedlings in 1 gal. transplanting soon. With the other 3 that are bigger, I had to take off some of the fans leaves they were so big. As soon as I did, all that it was shading took off. All not topped. Wanna keep a male CK and/or Male GI for next summer's guerilla grown pollinating. Got 20 Grape Inferno, I'm done buying seeds for a long time!
so far i love them. i still say led lighting is a bit overrated but for sure improved. just seems like the hps is still more efficient just because of the coverage. its hard for me to calculate everything because i have so many variables. i got the best of the best kind leds http://kindledgrowlights.com/product/led-grow-light-fixtures-k5-xl1000/. use about 600 watts meant to replace a 1000w hps. they do get hot but not as hot as an hid. they also dont seem to light up a room nearly as much. i might actually be running my lights too close. plus things will be much better once this heat wave ends and i dont have to run ac. i do a sealed room to keep in co2. temps are 85-91. i like 80-85. some of my strains start to fox tail more when the temps get around 90 especially the sativa dominant strains. some ppl tell me though 90 should be fine with co2. i use outside air instead of ac when it gets cold outside so temp control is much more affordable when not in summer. everything is run on controllers and timers to keep conditions close to optimal as i can without having a bunch of acs running. i have another sealed room with 2 hps 600s and the air constantly exchanges between them to keep the temps, humidity, and co2 consistent. i more like these led lights for experimental purposes. figured someone has to try the probably overpriced onces and report back.
have an aero system that i even want to try with the leds and grow like nasa space weed except it will be on earth. better then getting it from ricky grown on juniper.
yeah that jesus og is great. wish i could try it outdoors but temps are too cold where i live. only real hardy strains seem to thrive and they still dont compare to optimally grown known good indoor strains at least from my 12+ years of growing on and off. find a good pheno and you can top dollar for the quality. i had this one that didnt produce much but the buds were rock hard oily resin covered with a strong og smell. couldnt even tell any jtr was in it although the growth structure was somewhat similar. we nicknamed it hellscream. demand for clones were through the roof. sadly i fucked up a reveg and i cannot take any clones or anything back in what so ever because of my strict policy of seeds only or clones done by myself to minimize bug problems. got 5 new seeds of it though im waiting to pop one f these days. i hope i get a similar pheno. for now i got some brian berry cough just germinating. dont know anyone that has smoked or grown it. some of the pics looked similar to super lemon haze to me so i had to try it. nice color too. hope mine turn out good.
oregon D coming down in a few days
